You mean the knob hitting hose nut on valve?

Unscrew screw that hold the knob, remove knob and turn knob the other way, refit screw.

Hope I'm right....

Might be good idea, stop accidental turning on white putting stuff in cupboard, up to you.

its not in cupboard mate its behind the machine still worth getting one ? thank you for your help

if behind the machine and it starts dripping you will end up with a massive problem as it will drip for months before you notice, buy a 3/4" female brass cap and screw it onto the valve, some come with an internal washer, if no washer wrap some ptfe tape round the thread of the valve then screw the cap on
